Car parks with 5mph limits count too, right?
I tried that once in a cemetry. I drove at 5mph while the man with his dog walked past us looking at me funny

Obviously the statistics are flawed, because they don't back up your premise.

I've answered the poll because I'm interested in the answers. I stole sweets from the Sunday School tuck shop. For which I have repented in sachcloth and ashes.

As for the rest of it, well I suppose it's heartening that you don't reserve your sanctimony and loaded questions for religious threads. But I won't be sticking around this thread unless it needs moderating.

That's probably just a coincidence, but it should be clear to anyone reading the article that it was talking about average speeds, and that the conclusions of most other surveys are still accurate, which is that the vast majority of drivers exceed the speed limits at some point or another. We all know this, of course. Out of 24 voters here, 19 admit to breaking the speed limit.

Far be it from me to tell you how to do your job, but there were some angry comments earlier that maybe could have done with some bold fonted intervention. Some of it seemed downright libelous.
